What People Say About Dr. Richard McPherson, DO

I am more familiar with Dr McPherson as my wife's doctor, but am pleased to report that Dr McPherson was also kind and considerate, and listened carefully to my description of my back pain symptoms. He methodically gathered information with which to reach a diagnosis, and explained his observations to me thoroughly. Thankfully, my symptoms were diagnosed as muscle spasm vs a skeletal issue. I highly recommend Dr McPherson.

Dr McPherson has been incredibly helpful & kind. He’s looking at my individual situation & working with me to sort out what we can do to reduce my pain & help me to be able to be more active. He totally understands my point of view. He is thoughtful, polite, & on time for my appointments. I appreciate Dr McPherson as I have read how busy & stressful their working days are, but he is calm & focused on my issues. A+

I went in with lower back pain that was getting progressively worse. Dr. McPherson ordered a diagnostic procedure which is the foundation of future treatment. The whole process was handled by a team of professionals who were friendly, courteous, and focused on doing things the right way. While it's a first step, I feel confident in moving forward by the care I was shown.

My visit to Spine Team Texas was excellent. I was disappointed that the wait time to see the doctor was pretty long. However, once I was taken back everything went like clock work. Dr. McPherson was awesome!! He was very thorough and reassuring. He even took the time to google his diagnosis and swing the monitor around to show both me and my husband exactly what he thought was going on. I would recommend him highly!! Once done with him, my time going to x-ray, checking out and scheduling rehab was short and the staff kind and efficient.

Dr. McPherson was wonderful. He showed me pictures of my MRI and xray and explained it all to me. I will go back in on May 3rd for a shot in hopes that will relieve some of the pain. The only reason I would give him a 4 star rating is b/c I could not get a shot that day, which was no fault of Dr. McPherson.

Dr. McPherson and staff, including the physical therapists were very courteous and attentive to my problem. I am certain that their diagnosies and treatment will result in improvement in my condition. I have, in fact, already enjoyed improvement to the extent that I can resume normal activities with little or no problems.
